2007 Honda Civic SI
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
It works. Mostly. Nice to be able to still use the steering wheel controls to do stuff with an aftermarket head unit. This was probably the most complicated part of installing a new head unit though, which also included running a harness to the factory amp to bypass it (which included pulling the console out of the car). It wasn't that hard to program. I gave it 4 stars because the steering wheel controls' functionality isn't 100% there. There are only 4 buttons vol UP, vol DOWN, channel UP, channel DOWN. Volume buttons work fine. Channel buttons work fine to toggle between radio stations. But the channel buttons used to toggle between tracks on a CD, and that function isn't there anymore. So I did a lot of work (I probably spent 1.5-2 hours on just this part of the install between wiring it and reading the directions and reading the website and splicing the factory harness to make it work) to only regain 2 of 3 OEM functions. /shrug/
Pros: retained some steering wheel button functionality, which is convenient
Cons: Did not retain ALL steering wheel button functionality.
